What they said:

“Megan’s workshop on hosting global press was exceptional! She has a wealth of insight on what makes public relations professionals even better at their job of destination storytelling.  Her engaging presentation style is a mix of facts, real life experiences and humor. I’d highly recommend her program to any organizations – CVBs, hotels, travel products – that host international media. It’s well worth the investment and professional development time.”

– Danielle Cohn, Former VP Marketing Communications. Philadelphia CVB

 

“Megan’s training was invaluable for our partner businesses. Hotels, restaurants, attractions and wineries learned how to best approach and work with incoming travel writers. We got positive feedback from many of our partners and in the long run we anticipate better response from them as well as improved experiences for travel writers.”
